Martha Carlin Featured on the Health Detective Podcast with Evan Transue
I was honored to be a recent guest on the Health Detective Podcast with Evan Transue!
In this episode we discuss my story and my husband John's Parkinson's diagnosis, and how my systems background and thinking led to studying the microbiome. We also discuss how mannitol functions, metabolic health, the bioremediation of glyphosate, and much more!
You can listen to the interview here or on your favorite podcast platform, or read the full transcript here. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
Martha Carlin, is a Citizen Scientist, systems thinker, wife of Parkinson’s warrior, John Carlin, and founder of The BioCollective, a microbiome company expanding the reach of science. Since John’s diagnosis in 2002, Martha began learning the science of agriculture, nutrition, environment, infectious disease, Parkinson’s pathology and much more. In 2014, when the first research was published showing a connection between the gut bacteria and the two phenotypes of Parkinson’s, Martha quit her former career as a business turnaround expert and founded The BioCollective to accelerate the discovery of the impact of gut health on all human health, including Parkinson’s. Martha was a speaker at the White House 2016 Microbiome Initiative launch, challenging the scientific community to “think in a broader context”. Her systems thinking background and experience has led to collaborations across the scientific spectrum from neuroscience to engineering to infectious disease. She is a respected out of the box problem solver in the microbiome field and brings a unique perspective to helping others understand the connections from the soil to the food to our guts and our brains.
